The original Rockwell was produced by the Inland typefoundry in 1910, which issued it as Litho Antique; American Type Founders revived the face in the 1920s, with Morris Fuller Benton cutting several new weights. The Monotype Corporation produced its version of Rockwell in 1934; unfortunately, some of the literature erroneously referred to it as Stymie Bold, thereby creating confusion that still exists today. Rockwell is a geometric slab serif design, a strong display face for headlines and posters; it is also legible in short text blocks.
This face is designed to used at a text size of 12.0 points.
Rockwell is a trademark of The Monotype Corporation registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and which may be registered in certain other jurisdictions.
